Kangna Ranaut believes in the saying, “Once bitten twice shy.” And for this reason, she has said a big-fat no to playing a pivotal part of Krrish 2. The lead female role will still be played by Priyanka Chopra and thus, Kangna would simply play a supporting, but essential, role. However, after what the Roshans did to Kangna in Kites, she simply isn’t willing to take any risks and thus, has opted not to be a part of the sequel.
In fact, both Rakesh and Hrithik spoke at length to Kangna and insisted she reconsider as they thought she would do complete justice to the role. Sources claim the role was written keeping Kangna in mind but she refused to budge. She simply will not play “second fiddle” to an actress.
The actress is keen on doing more roles that are beyond being glamorous especially since her last few films have done nothing for her. She will be seen next in Tanu Weds Manu, Rascals, Game and Dhamaal 2. For this reason and more, she feels she does not need to be seen in supporting roles anymore.
Another reason for declining the role is because post Fashion, she has been offered far too many supporting roles while Priyanka Chopra has clearly gone on to bigger and better films.
Rakesh Roshan went on to deny any association of Krrish 2 with Kangna Ranaut. “Kangna wasn’t offered a role. Only Priyanka [Chopra] is final,” he stated.
